Yellowstone River Trout Fishing

The Yellowstone River is now fishing well from top to bottom with nymphs, streamers and dry flies.  The river is still green, with visibility between 2 and 3 feet.  The river is currently flowing at 5650 in town. In general dry fly fishing has been more consistent in the valley with hoppers, nocturnal stones, attractors…

Salmonflies in the Yellowstone Park

We had a great day fishing inside Yellowstone Park fishing with salmonflies and goldenstone patterns.  We saw about 2 dozen naturals, many of which were towards the end of their life cycle.  The native cutthroat were definitely looking up for dries, (although we caught most of our fish on smaller size 8 rubberleg nymphs).  We…

Summer is here…

  The Yellowstone has been on fire this week, with big fish eating nymphs and streamers.  Now is a great time to get out and go for a big one.  The fish are still on the banks and are actively looking for food.  Our advice?   Make you fly look like the “slow kid at…

Big Browns finally eating

  Right now the water clarity is perfect for fooling big fish.  If you like to chuck and duck with either streamers or big nymphs, you should be fishing right now.  The only other time we get such optimal windows of “green is good” water color is after a rain, when the river is clearing…

Now that the Yellowstone is finally in good shape the local and private lakes have finally started to come back strong. During the month of July there was a lot of pressure on many of these lakes, with anglers on them almost everyday.  Now that the fishing pressure has slowed down the fish are back…

Lower Yellowstone

We’ve had lots of folks ask us about the Lower Yellowstone.  We’ve had mixed reports but all agree there is A LOT of water down there with some dangerously big waves.  Yesterday guides did very well and landed several nice fish.  Today the morning was a little slow, most likely due to a brewing storm…

Yellowstone River Fishing Report

The  Yellowstone River is now fishing on a daily basis river wide.  While the river is not clear yet, it is green and the sub surface fishing has been good.  Over the past week our guides have produced many nice fish in the 20 inch range.   We are hoping to see the surface fishing…

Bugger Time!

As many of you know, the browns have been on the prowl, looking for larger “buggy” nymphs, buggers, and streamers.  Many guides are throwing darker colors which show up better from a distance, as well as some flashy flies like the sparkle minnow, tomb raider, or their own home ties.  You can get away with…

Missouri River Fishing Hot too!

While visibility is still not great, right around a foot in town, the Yellowstone River continues to steadily drop. The river is currently flowing at 9940 in Livingston this morning.  We have clients out on the Yellowstone this week and they have done fairly well with some bigger 20″ fish being caught.  With the clarity…
